PRI TRADE SHOW ATTRACTS MOTORSPORTS PROFESSIONALS FROM ACROSS THE GLOBE
Product innovations, supply partners, business conferences and networking opportunities draw overseas attendees to Indianapolis in December
ALISO VIEJO, CA — Motorsports professionals from all over the world will discover the newest racing and performance products, hear from leading experts, and connect with industry professionals during the 2019 Performance Racing Industry (PRI) Trade Show, held December 12-14 at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis. With a vast array of exhibitors, expanded educational program, and dedicated international business center complete with interpreters, the PRI Show provides incredible value and opportunity for overseas attendees.
“Thousands of industry members from more than 70 countries attend the PRI Show every year to see the hottest products, newest technology, and latest trends in racing,” said PRI Trade Show Director Karin Davidson. “Because of this worldwide appeal, the Show offers plenty of services to further facilitate international communication, business and exposure.”
New for 2019, the Show’s International Center inside the Indiana Convention Center’s 500 Ballroom will feature private meeting rooms, free Wi-Fi, printer access, and interpreters from several countries who are available by appointment at no charge to assist during meetings.
The Global Media Awards program returns for a second consecutive year, too, to give PRI Show exhibitors increased international exposure. As part of the program, international media from key regions of the world will identify Featured Products Showcase entries that are likely to be well-received in their home country. Journalists will then have an opportunity to meet with the winning parts manufacturers during an International Reception at the Show.
Also taking place at the PRI 2019, the International Council of Motorsport Sciences’ (ICMS) Annual Congress brings the worldwide motorsports community together for two days to learn about the latest innovations and advances in scientific research on human performance and safety in racing. Nearly a dozen industry experts will discuss various motorsports safety-related topics, including Motorsport Circuit Design and Construction, Track Medical Services from an International Perspective, and Drivers with Disabilities, among others.
All new for 2019, PRI’s International Trade Roundtable, part of the PRI Show’s expanded education program, will feature overseas dealers and distributors representing key motorsports markets across the globe discussing international racing trends and business opportunities. Attendees will learn about exports, shipping and communication, and gain strategies and tips to help them succeed in the international marketplace.
